Srinagar, Mar 27(ANI): In a joint extensive surveillance and search operation, security personnel have recovered a huge cache of ammunition and RDX from a hideout in Jammu and Kashmir's Sawjian sector in Poonch District.

The operations were conducted late on Friday evening.

The spot from where the arms were recovered is very close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch District.

"We launched this operation in Sawjian sector near Line of Control. We recovered nearly four kilograms of RDX, three magazines of AK-47 assault rifle, detonators and some grenades," said Major Ajay Pathania.

"If this hideout had not been busted these explosives and ammunition might have fallen into hands of militants and these would have caused great destruction," he added.

Among the assorted armament items seized were four kilograms of RDX, nine detonators, three magazines of AK-47 assault rifle and nine grenades. (ANI)
